How has it helped my organization?

Quick and easy way to share a new API design with teams.

While the implementation team is working on actual API code, others that need to use it can use the API definition on the Apiary for their tests.

What needs improvement?

Better Swagger support.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In two years, there was one time the service was down for an hour or so.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

There was no need to involve customer service.

Technical Support:

Very good. When project-specific questions are asked, the comprehensive answer will be provided in around 24 hours.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No, it was the first API management solution we used.

How was the initial setup?

The whole setup is for users and Git integration, so there are not too many setup tasks.

What about the implementation team?

It was an in-house implementation

What was our ROI?

Quick ROI in our case.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

  • There is a free subscription option to start and try the service.
  • Standard subscription is $99 for 10 users per month.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Swagger UI, Apigee, and Mashery.

Mostly, price versus features played a big role in selection.
